Rachel and PJ are my dream couple. I’m not a typical wedding and engagement photographer. Because of this, I don’t shoot many wedding or engagement sessions, but Rachel and PJ are different. They’re hosting their wedding and reception in their backyard in 2 weeks, their guests are going to be camping out with them, and there will be a taco bar and yard games. Laid back, backyard weddings are my jam. When we planned their engagement session, I knew it would be one to remember. They’re adventurous and love to be outdoors, so they decided that meeting at one of their favorite spots to play with the dogs would be the perfect way to tell their story. The weather was perfect, the water was warm, we talked and laughed the whole time, and I think PJ even forgot how awkward having his picture taken was. I am so excited to celebrate with them in 18 days!
I am a wife and mama to two little miracles from Morgantown, West Virginia. I've had a passion for photography my entire life, but when I had my daughter three years ago, I felt a deep urge to capture her every move. Her tiny baby feet and hands were changing every day, and I wanted a way that I could hold on to those memories forever. Photography is a gift that I provide my family with. I want my children to have authentic documentation of their childhood. I, wholeheartedly, believe that photography is an heirloom. I am living my dream by getting to know other families and telling their story through a series of photographs. I love to learn about, and document, what you love about your family. Babies change fast. The beautiful chaos of life is something you'll want to remember the rest of your life. Helping other families provide an heirloom for their children is my life's mission.
